Chautauqua / Capitol Forum on America's Future

The Great Plains Chautauqua "From Sea to Shining Sea: American Expansion and Cultural Change;" and Capitol Forum, a program for high school students that uses the humanities to explore American democracy.

The Nebraska Humanities Council (NHC) requests $48,030 to support two programs: Chautauqua and Capitol Forum on America's Future. The We The People funding will be used to help underwrite the Great Plains Chautauqua, "From Sea to Shining Sea; American Expansion and Cultural Change, 1790-1850" in Sidney and Lexington, Nebraska during the summer of 2005. The 2004-5 Capitol Forum, a curriculum-based program created by Brown University will help encourage approximately 1800 Nebraska high school students to better understand American democratic values and, thus, combat civic apathy.
